BAY ST. LOUIS — A Hancock County resident has been incarcerated based on the revocation of his 2012 false pretenses conviction, according to Attorney General Jim Hood.
Brad Dale Strong, 34, of Bay St. Louis was brought before Circuit Judge John Gargiulo in Hancock County by the Mississippi Attorney General Office’s Consumer Protection Division. Strong previously pled to false pretenses based upon a home repair job where checks from the homeowners were fraudulently obtained.
Gargiulo sentenced Strong to five years of probation and $10,000 restitution in 2012.
Gargiulo allowed Strong to remain on probation as long as he paid the required monthly restitution into the court. After Strong ceased the required monthly payments, the Consumer Protection Division petitioned to have Strong revoked. Once Gargiulo was convinced that Strong would not comply with the court’s orders, he revoked the entire probation requiring Strong to serve the remainder of his sentence, five years, in the Mississippi Department of Corrections.
